Filipinos love music in any form, we are so passionate that for sure there would be a song that they could relate it to their own life, or on a time of their life. And YES!! I have songs that could relate into any part of my life :-)
It's part of our culture, Filipinos loves music so much that we cant live without it may it be doing our chores, studying or even when we are taking a bath, we love to hear some melody to hum with and am guilty of this, it doesnt mean that I could sing, Hell Yah! I could sing, opps!! I love to sing but the songs doesnt love me back hahahahahah but it does not stop me from belting out a tune when needed :-)
That's why finding the right songs to be played during the ceremony and reception is such a tedious task for any couple, it's their way of sharing their life to their guests thru the songs that is being played, songs that could make them cry and laugh at the same time and maybe bring them back to their own memory lane.
So, compiling these songs made me an emotional wreck today, it's a tough job but then I realized I start doing it and hoping it would get better as I add some new songs heheehehehhe.
OK, to start compile all your favorite songs, then decide which songs would be played in the ceremony and reception.
For this post, am compiling the songs that I am considering to use our ceremony.
BRIDAL ENTOURAGE MARCH
For those who knows me, this is a no brainer its on my top list of wedding songs I love this song for eternity and this is the only song I could score 100 in any magic sing hahahahah. I stumbled upon the site dizzysfingers when I was searching for some piano versions of the songs that I wanted and guess what he almost have everything hehehehhe. Thanks Mr Dennis, you're one AWESOME guy!!! you are truly heaven sent :-)
Again, one of my favorite song and another rendition from Mr Dennis.
Ok, this is one of my guilty pleasures I fell inlove with this song because of Aiza and because Papa Aga Mulach made a movie with this as a theme song but then listening to the lyrics...hmmm?? I can see asking Jowaness the same question hahahahah... considering this to be my bridal march too :-)
This is another AWESOME rendition of Mr Dennis of dizzysfingers
This was hard I have so many choices so for the meantime am putting them here until I am able to trim the list down, I could picture myself walking down the long aisle of Mt Carmel in all of these songs... bummer!!!! help!!!
Traditional but then its so lovely.
This was a great find, I got it from the The Excited Bride site, she has this list of songs compiled and categorized. The VSQ youtube site has tons of songs to choose from and all of them are great :-)
This was another find from The Excited Bride site, I just can't thank her enough. The first time I heard this song was from my friend Benedict's connecting tone and instantly fell inlove with it, planning to suggest it to Jowaness as our first dance it conveys things that I want to tell him heheheheh ( Ewww!! Cheesy!! ) but when I heard this version.... it went to the top of my list as my bridal march :-)
Another from The Excited Bride site isn't she AWESOME!!. I heard this song from a wedding that I've attended and immediately loved the song and the first person that pop into mind is Jowaness, well we've known each other for almost 16 years and been together for 13 years doesn't that translate into a thousand years???? and then I found out that it's the bridal march of Bella in Twilight... and heard this song as a bridal march twice!!! hmmmmm? decisions....
If you have any other songs that you want to suggest or help me decide which one to choose please feel free to leave me a comment :-)
I would make another post for songs that Iam compiling to use in the reception.
